    Default Insignia VRX Brakes on a Vec...?

    The Insignia VXR has Brembo 4-cylinder brake calipers with 360 mm diameter disks on the front; has anyone done the maths on whether they would fit on a Vec/Signum? Not considering it for my car as I'm sure it would cost an arm and a leg, but would be good to know just out of idle curiosity.

    The answer is a simple................no chance.

    Vectra has a 5 x 110 stud pattern.
    Insignia has a 5 x 112 stud pattern.

    The PCD of the calipers where they bolt on to the strut is also different. So it would not even be worth modifying them to fit. It would be cheaper to buy a different kit from Brembo/Hi-Spec/AP Racing/Willwood.

    As maverick says, you would probably be cheaper buying 6pot ap racing brakes, and they are just as big, they fit and probably work just as good if not better

    Would "wobbly" bolts not work?

    Why've Vaux changed to 5 x 112... For as long as I can remember they have been 5 x 110.

    I'd assume because everything is a lot bigger on the insignia...
